The Struggle Between Presenting Arguments and Being Argumentative

How do we keep ourselves from being arrogant once we’ve studied enough to make the argument for Christianity? How can we avoid being argumentative, impatient, and arrogant in our conversations with people who oppose the truth? Christopher Sernaque from Christ Jesus Ministries discusses the issue with J. Warner on the Pilate’s Interview Podcast.

    Awesome video Professor Wallace! I am so glad the Christ Jesus Ministries Channel introduced me to you! I bought your book Cold-Case Christianity after I saw you on their platform.

    Many people do say the most awful things while hiding behind the shield of anonymity. I'd like to see these masks peeled away, but at the same time, as long as they wear them we can see them as they truly are even if we do not know their real identities.

    My personality is direct and blunt, and I prefer that in return. It saves so much time and less room for misunderstandings. But I do know sometimes I come off as harsh or abrupt if you are not used to that. I really wish I could buy a pair of “kids gloves🧤” and instructions on when to put them on. Some need that gentle talk but some will never hear it if you are too gentle. I wouldn’t. If you have Italians or Germans in your family then you will understand this more.

    The best apologists – for me anyway – are people who are genuinely former atheists or agnostics. True good-living atheists and agnostics, not lapsed Christians who have lived a debauched life, 'found Jesus', and finally decided to clean up their act… and then inflict a lecture on everyone else.

    The best apologies – for me anyway – are (a) the ones which go back to the first century and honestly study the available facts; and (b) the accounts of how atheists or agnostics actually came to change their minds, not how Christians think the rest of us should change our minds.

    Mr Wallace you are so right….I stand convicted ……my ' over enthusiasm ' is probably not bringing any glory to the LORD…….I shall be aware of that in future.
    Thank you for sharing and GOD bless.

    God help us when our depravity leaks out. God please help us all the time for that matter. It’s all by His grace that we even get to live. Totally dependent upon His mercy, grace, love, kindness & forgiveness. 🙏🏼❤️

    I can really identify with this. Especially getting into apologetics because I'm someone already predisposed to arguing; the struggle not to use apologetics as an aggression, as a battering ram to go out and challenge others to a duel with it, but simply to hold this knowledge for such a time as someone actually asks… it is a struggle.

    I strongly disagree with your opposition to anonymity on social media. My opinions on YouTube comments have nothing to do with my family. Standard advice is to reveal as little as possible about location and other personal data. Some people use an icon that represents the purpose for their being on social media.
    To give one example the Apostate Prophet is under indictment in Pakistan for the capital offence of leaving Islam. If Pakistan ever get him into custody he faces a quick mock trial and execution. Possibly after being held for years under inhumane conditions. His family has been threatened. He has over time revealed himself in part. His viewers know he is Turkish and comes from Germany. He is in danger. Those with good memory know his name. Some are afraid to even show their faces.
